    I'm starting to see signature spam again. Any chance we could extend the spam cleaner functionality into signatures? :)

    I'd like to see the spam cleaner extended to include an option to delete a user's signature when we execute the spam cleaner. I want to delete spammer's signatures because I see no point in storing their signatures in my database nor promote their spam.

    +1 for this. A lot of spammers add spam in their sigs.

    Don't you think it would be better to have custom user groups with customizable fields for each user group so they do not have the option of homepage and signature link slots in the first place ?

    This is the Black Hat Spam-E-O moron hottest tactic, spamming forum user profile forms without spamming threads, they register thousands of accounts on each forum they spam to dump links in user profiles.

    Well yes, I like to keep the sig and profile settings to users with 10 posts or more, but extra protection never hurts just in case.

    Disabling signatures for guests prevents the spammer's signature from being indexed anyway.

    And I agree with the suggestion.
